Subject: Medieval true crime

"A Mediaeval Burglary" is a 24-page lecture transcript from 1915 about a little known burglary of King Edward I's treasure room in 1303. There remains some mystery of who did it, this real-life story has drama, interesting characters, scandal, cover-up, and provides a sense and feel of the times from a ground-up perspective. Entertaining, includes a hand-drawn map and two relevant manuscript pages.

There is a recent book about it called 'The Great Crown Jewels Robbery of 1303' (2005) by an author better known as a novelist -- its 300+ pages (I have not read it), but I think this short lecture by a Medieval scholar covers it pretty well and has Victorian character which adds to the atmosphere.
